Understanding Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)

  • Children At Play 1610 West St. Suite 207 Annapolis, MD 21401 (map)

SPD is a neurophysiologic condition where a person’s senses poorly detect, modulate or interpret stimulus.  A child with SPD perceives sensory information (smells, sights, sounds, touch) different than most people. It is a complex condition that looks different in every person that has it.  Samantha Offutt Hyali, MS, OTR/L, owner of Children at Play will explain SPD, what it is, how to diagnosis it, and how to treat it in children.  There will be a 10 minute Q&A session after her presentation.
